And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
It’s a go-to promise you’ve most likely heard over and over again. You may have even pulled this Scripture out a few times to counsel and encourage others. Some of you probably have it framed and displayed within view of where you’re sitting right now or have bookmarked it in your Bible.
But for some reason, you’re having a hard time believing it for yourself.
This scripture is saying that God promises a new life – a gloriously transformed life – in Him through the hope of the gospel of Christ.
An encounter with Jesus changes everything.
It changes our perspective, our priorities, and our purpose in the here and now…
It’s hope... through a promise that God has given us in His Word; and through Jesus that bore all of our griefs and sorrows on the Cross.
4 Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
5 But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
For those who are in Christ Jesus, it means that nothing can separate us from His love. It means we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us (Rom. 8:37-39)… and that’s worth far more than any “good” worldly circumstance could ever achieve for us or in us. Also the tough situations in life... No matter what the world and it’s problems throw at you!
“It all works out in the end. If it hasn’t worked out yet, then it’s not the end.”
Keep your head up and look too Jesus. He is your hope and is working out all things for the good for you.
Hope in Christ. Texas For Jesus.
